Sky Go Silverlight

“ Sky Go makes use of the Microsoft Silverlight plug-in to run several internet applications. However, if you are using the Google Chrome web browser, then we have bad news for you – Google Chrome no longer supports this application framework. So, the best way to access this on-demand TV service is by changing to an alternate web browser. The Sky Go desktop app makes it even easier for you to find the programmes you want to watch. And with Sky Mobile, you can watch Sky TV on the go without using your data. Sky Go is included at no extra cost to your Sky TV subscription.


I have just replaced my iPad 2 for a macbook pro. I want to be able to watch sky go extra on this as i spend a lot of time in hospital, so it said on the sky website i needed to download silverlight so i downloaded it but when it came to opening it i couldn't, it says

“Silverlight.pkg” can’t be opened because the identity of the developer cannot be confirmed.

which means i cannot watch sky go. I do spend a lot of time layer up either in hospital or on my bed due to disabilities so it really was great when sky brought this out. Hope you can help.

Many thanks in advance

When working with Microsoft Silverlight you may encounter the following scenarios:

  • Install Microsoft Silverlight

  • Upgrade to another version of Microsoft Silverlight

  • Uninstall Microsoft Silverlight

  • Microsoft Silverlight does not work as expected

Attempts to restart the computer and try to upgrade, install or uninstall Microsoft Silverlight again end in the same results.


This issue can occur if an existing installation or uninstall has become corrupt. Tuxera ntfs full crack.
